Company - "Top Tigers" Unit Patch - The 68th Assault Helicopter Company
was assigned to the 145th Combat Aviation Group and became part of
Airmobile Light. The 68th AHC supported the 18th and 199th
ARVN Units as well as U.S. Units operating in III Corps from the Mekong Delta
to the rugged mountains around Song Be. The 68th AHC received a
young Bangle Tiger Cub and Tiger became the mascot and the unit was named the “Tigers”,
objections from older Tiger Units necessitated a name change and 68th
new name became the “Top Tigers” true to their motto, “Every Man A Tiger”.
